Only In Thee

Only in Thee

Only In Thee

words: T.O. Chisholm (1905)
music: Charles H. Gabriel (1905)

1: Only in Thee, O Savior mine,
Dwelleth my soul in peace divine,
Peace that the world, tho all combine,
Never can take from me.

Pleasures of earth, so seemingly sweet,
Fail at the last my longings to meet;
Only in Thee my bliss is complete.
Only, dear Lord, in Thee!

2: Only in Thee, a radiance bright,
Shines like a beacon in the night,
Guiding my pilgrim bark aright,
Over life’s trackless sea.

Only in Thee, when troubles molest
When with temptation I am oppressed,
There is a sweet pavilion of rest.
Only, dear Lord, in Thee!

3: Only in Thee, dear Savior, slain,
Losing Thy life my own to gain,
Trusting I’m cleansed from every stain,
Thou art my only plea.

Only in Thee my heart will delight,
Till in that land where cometh no night
Faith will be lost in heavenly sight.
Only, dear Lord, in Thee!

 

 

What peace is offered from these words of reminder about where our true peace, hope, and salvation come from. Only, dear Lord, in Thee!

At Home.
